'I cried for two weeks': Britney Spears responds to documentary about her life

Britney Spears said she “cried for two weeks” after watching part of a high-profile documentary that explored her career.

Framing Britney Spears premiered in February and examined the pop superstar’s rise to the summit of the music industry, her treatment at the hands of the tabloid media, her involuntary commitment to a psychiatric ward in 2008, and the subsequent conservatorship (an “imposed power-of-attorney-on-steroids”) given to her father that has had him oversee her finances and personal affairs since 2008.

While Spears, 39, had previously addressed the documentary indirectly, she put out a statement on Tuesday night via Instagram: “I didn’t watch the documentary” but what she has seen of it left her “embarrassed by the light they put me in”.

“I cried for two weeks,” adding, “and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!!”.

The statement was accompanied by a video of the pop star dancing to the Aerosmith song Crazy.

In the post Spears wrote: “I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people !!! It takes a lot of strength to TRUST the universe with your real vulnerability cause I’ve always been so judged… insulted… and embarrassed by the media… and I still am till this day !!!!”

She added: “As the world keeps on turning and life goes on we still remain so fragile and sensitive as people !!!”

After touching on the documentary, she said: “I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy … love … and happiness !!!! Every day dancing brings me joy !!! I’m not here to be perfect … perfect is boring … I’m here to pass on kindness.”

In the latest hearing on the conservatorship, Spears’ lawyer, Samuel D Ingham III, told a Los Angeles judge that Spears wished for her temporary care manager, Jodi Montgomery, to be permanently installed to manage her personal affairs.

However, Jamie remains co-conservator of his daughter’s financial affairs, an arrangement she is not happy with.
